    how do you write "else's"

    as in:

    I am taking someone else's parking spot. does it need an apostrophe at all? elses, elses', else's, all come up with red squiggles for me.

    You write it the way you have written it. I don't get any red squiggles for that sentence in Word. Maybe there's something wrong with your spelling or language settings?
